Who, What, When & Where
Please Note: Due to the current Coronavirus crisis, NO Anglican church services (Sundays or mid-week) will be held in the Cooma Parish starting this weekend Sunday 22 March and until further notice. (The same situation applies across the whole Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn.) For enquiries contact Revd Lance Lawton 6452 1544.
The congregation of St Paul's Cooma (the principal worship centre of our scattered Christian communities) meets for worship at 9:00am* each Sunday in St Paul's Church, 136 Commissioner St.
A small congregation also meets each Wednesday at 9:30am.
St John's is a church with a remarkable history.
Initially built in what is now known as Old Adaminaby, this wonderful old church was dismantled and re-built some 8 kilometres away following the construction of Lake Eucumbene, which flooded the original township. In fact, the entire village was relocated to its present site to make way for the Snowy Hydro Electric Scheme.
Worship is held on the first and third Sunday at 3pm during Winter, and 4pm during Daylight Saving.
Services are held in our cosy hall adjacent to the church. But for major services such as Christmas and Easter, the church is our worship venue.
We are small in number but dedicated in our worship, which is relaxed and somewhat informal.
Our local contact is Deacon Edith Mayhew: Ph 6454 2274.

Christ Church, Maneroo
Built in 1845, Christ Church is the oldest Christian worship building on the Monaro. It is located on Church Rd, just beyond the outskirts of Cooma.
With its accompanying pioneer cemetery, it is a historical landmark, and a testament to the labours of those who began gospel work in the region.
Regular worship ceased when St Paul's Cooma was completed in 1871/72. Special services are held at Christ Church occasionally.
